Telecom agent partners are well-versed in connectivity, but as more businesses favor cloud-based solutions, these partners realize that they have to learn a new language.

To that end, LanYap, a longtime partner of Petaluma, Calif.-based Intelisys, signed up for the master agent’s three-day cloud training program, Super9.
